A Bali adventure tour

that if it was any more laid back it would be lying down

Everyone dreams of paradise and now you have the chance to experience it! Come with us to Bali where we will visit the Gili Islands, also referred to as the Paradise Islands. Along the way you will learn how to surf and you will also have the opportunity to explore life under the water as we go on a boat tour around the Gili Islands. We will visit many ancient temples, including the Monkey Forest. During the trip we will also visit many beaches with crystal clear water and chalky white sand.

We will also climb a volcano, after which we will enjoy breakfast at the top while the first rays of the sun hit us.

Even if you spend 12 days in paradise, we guarantee you will have many experiences.

Canggu - First insight into Bali's culture and history

Experiences on your own:

  • Frequent one of Canggu’s popular cafes

Canggu - Surfing and beach relaxation

We spent the previous day on the waves, so it is time to explore the countryside. We will visit Lovina, which will take your breath away with lush rice paddies and smiling locals. On the way to Lovina, we will visit a temple and find time for swimming in a waterfall. We will arrive at our villa in the afternoon. Our villa is located in the hills with the most fantastic view over the rice paddies and ocean.

(Breakfast and dinner)

Lovina - Balinese culture and unspoiled nature

After breakfast on the beach, we will board our boat. We will sail along the coast and keep an eye out for the wild and playful dolphins. Once back on land, we visit a local family who will teach us how to weave a basket. The family will give us an insight into their island life. If you feel exhausted by the end of the day, we recommend relaxing in the villa’s infinity pool.


Lovina - Sunrise and wild dolphins

If you think you have experienced paradise, then think again! Crystal-clear water, palm trees and white beaches await us at Gili Islands. We will take the ferry to Gili Trawangan, the biggest of the three islands. Get adjusted to the island life in paradise. We recommend ordering a cold beer or piña colada at the beach before exploring the nightlife.


Experiences on your own:

  • Rent a bike and explore the island
Gili Trawangan - Paradise Island

There is no hurrying in paradise. No motorized vehicles are allowed on Gili Trawangan, so we get on the bikes and pedal around. We will stop at stunning beaches, and when you think you have had enough, then we will end the day at that beach with the famous swing in the water.


Experiences on your own:

  • Rent a paddle board and explore the coast line
  • Relax beach side
  • Visit a few of the trendy bars in town
Explore Gili Trawangan

The goal of the day is to see as many colourful fish as possible, perhaps even get friendly with a sea turtle. We will do some island hopping between the Gili Islands, and there is plenty of time to explore underwater life.


Gili Trawangan - Underwater Adventure

It is time to leave paradise for now. We get on the ferry back to Bali and travel to Ubud; the mekka of culture awaits us.


Travel to Ubud

You have most likely seen pictures from the Monkey Forest, but now it is time to explore it first hand! The temples are more than 100 years old which has been taken over by monkeys. Hold on tight to your things, as these cheeky creatures are more than happy to “borrow” your stuff without giving them back.


Ubud - A trip to the Monkey Forest

It’s an early start today, as we need to get to the top of the volcano before sunrise. The view awaiting us is totally worth leaving bed early today.

Once we make our way back down, we are rewarded with a traditional Balinese massage.

(Breakfast and dinner)

Ubud - Volcanoes and massage

We have reached the last day of our adventure, and we hope you enjoyed your stay in paradise. You can always stay longer if you want or continue your adventure at a new destination.
